If you are a big fan of video games than the last few months must have felt like you have entered heaven. With the releases of Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, and now Skyrim gamers have a lot to be excited about. Perhaps the most anticipated of the games is the new Elder Scrolls game Skyrim. Skyrim is set in Tamriel, in well the land of skyrim. For all those that played Oblivion, Skyrim is extremely similar and will play almost exactly a like. However there are a few notable differences, the biggest being the fact that you can now duel weild weapons and spells. This makes for exciting new combinations of sword and spell, two swords, or even two spells. However this post is going to talk about how important grand soul gems are. Grand soul gems have the ability to hold the souls of creatures that you have killed. If the creature has soul trap placed over them when slain then the soul will be transfered into the soul gem. Filled Soul gems can then be used to enchant items giving them very interesting new qualities that can help you along your adventure.
